If you like real nail-biters, this is the best one so far this year. (Stephen King)
Chris Pavone is the new best thing. The Accident proves the promise of The Expats. It is as intelligent and timely as it is relentless and gripping. Pavone is going to be around for a long time and now is the time to jump on the train. (MICHAEL CONNELLY)
Unputdownable ... Pavone [is] a reliable new must-read in the world of thrillers. (The New York Times)
A propulsive A-train of a thrill ride and [a] worthy successor to Pavone's debut, destined to make readers as compelled to turn its pages as Isabel and her colleagues are to publish the manuscript that spawned it. (The Los Angeles Times)
A fast-paced, twisting, smart follow-up to The Expats. Cleverly plotted, filled with surprises, a terrific read. (WILLIAM LANDAY, author of Defending Jacob)
A dizzyingly good follow-up to The Expats. The dark eruption of long-buried secrets, complex betrayals further snagged by sex and greed, and eleventh-hour desperate gambits for reinvention all propel a whirlwind story that will keep you up way past your bedtime. Crafty, stylish, satisfying. (PAULA McLAIN, author of The Paris Wife)
Chris Pavone's debut novel The Expats knocked readers on their ear with its superbly plotted, surprise-packed authority and it's a pleasure to find that its follow-up is every bit as accomplished...It is not just a strong successor to The Expats but a complex and involving novel in its own right. With just two books Chris Pavone has put himself in the upper echelons of the pulse-racing fraternity. (Barry Forshaw Daily Express)
A breathless tale of a damning biography of a media tycoon - featuring murder and national cover-ups. (Shortlist)
Brilliantly, the dastardly machinations, the devious ploys, the breathless hounding and the revealing of the truth are sorted out in 24 thrill-packed hours. Awesome. (Jon Wise Sport)
A serpentine, sharp-edged thriller about a book that could end the career of one of worlds great media moguls.Former publishing editor Pavone piles twist upon twist, double-cross upon double-cross, but the resolution is sinuous and elegant. (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)
Chris Pavone's thriller debut, The Expats, promised well. His second, The Accident fulfils that expectation. It's a breathless read. (Marcel Berlins The Times)
The book-within-a-book format provides the highly engaging vehicle that drives The Accident, a page-turner that shows how writing can be the most dangerous act of all. 'Is it possible to succeed without any act of betrayal?' asked Jean Renoir, the epigraph to this hair-raising follow-up to The Expats, which examines success and failure within the writing world. (Anita Sethi Metro 2014-03-27)
Well written, well thought out and incredibly exciting, this is one to look out for. (Victoria Clark The Lady 2014-03-14)
Tense and stylish. (Liz Smith My Weekly 2014-03-25)
The Accident by Chris Pavone is a riveting time-bomb of a thriller from the author of the Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller The Expats.See all Product description

However, the plot becomes rather too contrived and difficult situations somehow get neatly sorted to save the plot.
My problem it the breathtakingly lame ending. I cannot believe Mr Pavone did not get some strong advice about it from his editor. Advice such as "is that it?".
Do not not read this, rather, read it and see if you agree with me.
An anonymously written book called The Accident has landed on her desk, and it’s dynamite. It’s about a real-life media tycoon with power and contacts that would cause something more than the odd ruction in the political world if it were published.
The CIA aren’t happy, and people are winding up dead over it. So, who’s behind the book? And who’s going to wind up on a slab for even so much as looking at it?
Brilliantly, the dastardly machinations, the devious ploys, the breathless hounding and the revealing of the truth are sorted out in 24 thrill-packed hours. Awesome, as we’ve come to expect from Yanks.
